states. a defiant chris christie says he will not let the hysteria over the new jersey bridgegate scandal distract him from what he calls his real job or his second-term agenda. the governor has denied knowing anything about the politically motivated lane closings at the george washington bridge. in a radio interview wednesday, christie was asked about the impact of the state legislature's investigation. >> of course it distracts, but it doesn't prevent us from doing our job. i mean, sure, because if you spent any amount of time on it during any day, that's time that you otherwise would be spending on something else. so, of course, to some extent, but it's an important thing to have to look into and get to the bottom of, and as i've said before, we'll spend the time that we need to spend on it, on appropriate investigations, and then when we have all the information we need, we'll put it out to the public. >> governor christie acknowledged that his approval numbers have dropped considerably, but he says they're still better than most governors across the country. >>> all right, we're gett
fannie packs. >>> new jersey governor chris christie says the investigation into bridgegate is a distraction that will not prevent him from doing his job. on his ask the governor radio show, christie said he won't give in to the hysteria surrounding specific questions into that political scandal that just won't go away. christie says people want to work with him. >> i was at a town hall meeting today in longville township. 525 people there and not one question on any of this stuff. people want me to do my job. i'm going to do my job. if the legislature wants to be partisan and political and block the agenda that the voters voted for in november for their governor, the only person all the voters voted for, then they'll have to put up with the political consequences that come along with that. >> christie continues to defend his handling of bridgegate as the investigation moves forward into the lane closures last year on the george washington bridge. >>> will she or won't she? hillary clinton hasn't said if she plans to run for president in 2016 but her fiery speeches and her s

scandal that won't go away for new jersey governor chris christie. those tapes which were recorded during that massive traffic tie up on the george washington bridge were released by emergency officials in ft. lee, new jersey. cnn is going through the recordings right now. investigative correspondent joins us from washington. he's one of the guys going through those records. tell us more. >> reporter: good morning. we have more than 20 hours of 911 tapes during that week where the bridge lanes were closed. remember ft. lee was hardest hit by those lane closures, two of the three lanes from ft. lee on to that bridge was closed. and that really made ems officials very concerned. at the time the ems coordinator there wrote a letter and said trips that should have taken a few minutes took more than three times that long. so these tapes are a real-time window into the havoc that this traffic jam was causing. if you remember there was a story of a 91-year-old woman who had a heart attack. the paramedics were caught in some of that gridlock. her daughter later said she didn't think the gridlock
that chris christie was the front runner for the republican nomination before the whole bridge thing. now, don't get me wrong, do i think that the you think of a football field and the right end of the football field, do i think that it's smart for republicans to nominate somebody that's on sort of the 35-yard line, someone that can, you know, win among conservatives but also go into the middle? absolutely. but the thing is, the heart and soul of republican nomination, presidential nomination process is in the base. and think about some of the people that republicans seriously considered nominating before they finally settled on number, the guy with all -- setd on mitt romney. michelle back match, herman cain, rick santorum, rick perry, newt gingrich.
